The Comfort Zone Program

SWEET…Kevin Lajoie, Public Information Coordinator, of The City of Cornwall hosted a Spring Clean-Up Event on April 25, 2015. In collaboration with Mr. Lajoie, Laurencrest Youth Services and the Laurencrest Comfort Zone Program participated in the Spring Clean-Up.

WOW…As a pre-emptive gesture in support of such a civic minded event, on April 22, 2015 thirteen youth and three mentors affiliated with Laurencrest Youth Services Inc., The Comfort Zone Program, and St. Matthews Catholic Secondary School dedicated 4 hours cleaning up at the Lamoureux Park and the St. Lawrence River shoreline and Marina 200. Lots of hard work, comradery and a connection to our community was rewarded with a heavy dose of pizza afterward.  Congrat’s to everyone involved!

AWESOME…Laurencrest Youth Services is also pleased to announce a second Comfort Zone location!  Principal Joy Martel and VP Walter MacDonald have kindly offered St. Matthew’s Catholic High School as our secondary site on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Location diversity helps break down demographic obstacles for youth trying to access Comfort Zone programming.  Thank you to St. Matthew’s and T.R. Leger for assisting us in the privilege of supporting youth in our community.

FANTASTIC…Youth and Youth Mentors of the Comfort Zone Program would like to give a big “TWO THUMBS UP” to Mr. Jason Christoff and Mr. Jason Dennis, owners of Physical Limits and Summit Gym, for giving the group access to their facilities.
